The Hollow Mask"Wear me." It says. You
look at the mask. It seams
harmless. A simple mask of black,
white, and red. A perfect mask for
a masquerade ball. "It won't hurt." It says as
you turn in around. You are greeted by a back
of pure darkness. As you bring it towards your
face your nose is filled with the stench of death
and decay. The mask itself begins to change.
It smiles. A smile of nightmarish proportions.
Its teeth begin to elongate into fangs. The ribbons
at either side of it wrap around the back of your
head. As your face makes contact with the back of the
mask its eyes begin to glow crimson and you no longer
feel it. In fact you no longer feel anything. For the mask
has now become a part of you. It is you.
Of Hunt and Change : 8THE DISCOVERY
Night is too dark was his first thought when the lights had been turned off in his cell at night a few days ago. Somehow he think he should still be able to see things better in the darkness. It almost felt like he was blind there even though he was sure it was normal or was it?
His family will come today, and so he has been moved to a less guarded area of the base. Sure, they doesnt use handcuffs on him, but they keep eyes on him like a hawk on its prey. He could almost feel it the way guards react around him. There must be something he is missing here, something very important. Besides, he has no chance to see his hunt mates yet since his return and he wonder how the fight goes
He pauses, probably for the third time today.
Hunt mates? Where did that word came from?? He had meant his partners. Hunt mates sound so very aliens. He shudders.
Three officers, whose face he neve
Of Dream and Xenomorph : 3THE XENOMORPH
I dreamed. I would call it a nightmare but it didnt feel like one. It felt more like a vision, a history that unrolled before me, a history of the race I have become
It all started long ago, on a planet far faraway. Conflicts in politic and believes had caused a war between members of a highly advanced race. One side tried to overpower the other. All kind of weapons had been used, but none could archived a victory. The war continue for months, and years, and then decades.
Eventually, an ultimate weapon had been created, in hope to end the war once and for all a biological weapon, the perfect killing machine
It did end the war alright, just not in the way their creators had wanted. The planet laid in ruin as an aftermath attempt to destroy their own ultimate weapon.
Years had passed. Races after races attempted to control and harness the power that could not be. Some in the name of war, some in the name of science, and others
Of Dream and Xenomorph : 2THE DREAM
Darkness darkness all around me. I was running, aimlessly. I knew not who or what was after me, only knew that I had to run, as fast as I could. The darkness was approaching me, I could feel it. I tried to run away, but it only got closer and closer.
I gasped, suddenly found myself confined within the blanket of darkness, unable to move. I tried to call for help, to scream, but there was no sound coming out.
Suddenly, I was free again, running through an abandoned street. There was no one in sight, no car was seen. I kept running as the shadow creature going after me. From afar at first, but kept getting closer and closer
I had to go faster, escape from these nightmare. If I had stayed in my house, I wouldnt be in this nightmare right now. I had to escape, to the safety
I ran as fast as I could, but the creature is still approaching me. I turned back, to see its claws nearly reached me. It leap
Of Hunt and Change : 9THE MEETING
It was not hard to convince the General that he had indeed walked amongst the alien during his absence, all traces pointed that way. It take a bit more work to convince them that most of the people who had believed to be killed are still alive, and remember it, even though they are now considered aliens themselves. It was another thing, however, to convince them of the Empress good intention.
But with a bit of convincing with his mental ability, they decided to give the aliens a chance. He had finally managed to be the volunteer who will walk into the alien hive and arrange a meeting for them, convinced his commanders that if what he told was not true, then he himself would not be returned and no harm would be done. They reluctantly agreed.
Of course, he could have just spoke mentally with the Empress from within the base, but they would question how could he communicate with the aliens over distance. He couldnt le
Of Hunt and Change : 6THE RESCUES
The special forces broke through the fake hive walls and reached the lower area of the hive. They found lots of normal concrete rooms deep inside the hive, none of the room has doors or windows of any sort. Though most of them are relatively clean, compared to the rest of the place. They have a normal bed with a cardboard or a bookcase, sometimes with connected toilet. There are even ten rooms with, surprisingly, working computers completed with Wi-Fi network. They also rescued a dozen captives which were immediately be quarantined, scanned, and interrogated. All of them found clean of alien substances of any kind.
It had been confirmed that the computers were the ones that they had used to call for help. All of the survivors confirmed none of the aliens had harmed them in anyway, other than kept them captive. They were well fed, allowed the use of proper bathrooms and toilets, as well as random entertainments. The entertainments were varied. Some go
Of Dream and Xenomorph : 1THE CAPTURE
It had been several months since I've moved here, a lone house on a mountain. There were some other houses scatters nearby, but not so much. I still don't believe my luck in getting this house at the price I got. It was probably one of the best spot one could get. The nearest town was only about half an hour away with my mountain bike, probably much less should I get a car. But you know the oil and gas price, and I could get some exercise biking up and down the mountain.
The house sit near a cliff, with big front yard and back with a mountain, overlooking a forest view below. Every morning, I would wake up to sit at the edge of the cliff, watching the sun goes up to the blue sky.
I didn't go into the town very often, normally just once in a few days, to buy stuffs I need. It had been peaceful here, but still with all the convenient one could get. I had electricity, gas, water and broadband internet. Life couldn't have been better to me, or so I thought.
It all happened one
